Shoulders & Upper Back Stretch
- With arms at the vertical position and fingers interlocked, inhale deeply and slowly exhale as you lean to one side.
- Inhale as you return to the upright position.
- Repeat to the other side.
Trainer Tom, as he's referred to in the book, or Tom Deters, as he's known IRL, will demonstrate some basic stretches so that YOU can hit the floor in proper form.
*Remember to move slowly back to the upright position to avoid a head rush!
*The goal is to square your hips to the floor. Depending on your degree of flexibility, the angle of the front leg and how straight the back leg is will vary.
*The focus of this stretch is in the abdominal and lower back areas.
*You can go from Upward Dog to Downward Dog and repeat as a great way to stretch and warm up your body!
